Phpmyadmin also requires php5-mbstring, php5-mcrypt, php5-mysql and php5-zip, all of which depend on php5 rather than php52. Is there a flag to install the dependencies without php getting upgraded? I saw there was a ticket requesting a phpmyadmin variant for php52 (ticket # 23329), but the request was turned down.

php4 and php52 are obsolete and not very interesting anymore. :/ I would much rather see drupal updated to use php 5.3 than expend further energy on old versions of php.

Perhaps these are relevant:!closed&summary=~drupal
